Congratulations to Ashley Bass on picking up the Employee of the Month for July. Ashley worked hard to understand and get our new rolls working properly. He has written the majority of the programs and has managed to get the roundest rollings we have ever had. These rollings will make building the fittings easier and…

Our new rolls have been delivered. Weighing in at 6.7 ton it took quite a bit of effort removing them from the lorry where it was placed behind the cab and the sides couldn’t be removed to access it fully. Our cranes are only rated to 5ton so we had to use a 16 ton…

Congratulations to Phil Stevens on becoming our first employee of the month. We had a hydraulic copy unit that is attached to a lathe that was deemed to be irreparable. Hydraulic specialists were unable to fix this unit in the past and the lack of a copy unit limits the types of fitting that can…

Dick has sadly decided that it is time to hang up his boots and retire. Dick has been with the company since August 1996. He did briefly leave in 2005 before discovering that Shand was the right place for him and he returned the following week. He has a good sense of humour that made…

It is with sadness but the best of wishes, that we announce the retirement of Dave, Financial Director at Shand, after more than 31 years with the business.  Dave joined Shand in 1987 as Company Accountant, shortly before taking on the role as Company Secretary.

As a thank you to all employees for the hard work done during February that helped keep costs down whilst maximising the sales, we had pizzas delivered for all.  The food and drink was well received although some seemed to struggle with work after the vast amounts consumed…  A big thank you to all those that contributed so much during February.

Another great fabrication we have built for a CNC machine. It has been shotblasted (Hence the grey finish) and is awaiting painting, but you can already see the quality of the fabrication and welding.

The new stores are here. We carefully and safely dismantled  the old hut before having our new goods-in and stores building built. It needs some dry weather and then it will be painted to finish it off.    

Having put in an amazing 41 years continuous service with Shand Engineering, Billy finally decided that it was time to hang up his overalls, and to retire. The team got together on Friday 16th February to present Billy with his Shand memento (A small Shand fitting mounted on a plaque) as well as a £300…

Every year Shand Engineering have a day out and this year we returned to the Market Rasen race course. A fantastic time was had by all and there were even a few employees who left with more money than they entered with. Many thanks to Rob for organising the event and for the weather for…
